Dr. Kevin Leman's book "Have a New Kid by Friday" is changing the lives of parents across the country. It's helping parents create mutual respect with their children. Andrew is a believer in Dr. Leman's methods and he's here to spread the wisdom! Check out what he has to say in this video.

Yes, not permanently, you have to be consistent, but you can see changes in 5 days. And it's true, the parent's attitude must be correct before they start trying to work with their children. But I don't think using eventual consequences are helpful because that will cultivate bitterness. Especially if you are training toddlers and younger children, waiting to give them consequences until later will just be confusing. Consequences should be explained at the time of the offense and with younger children, the consequences should be at the time of the offense so it is perfectly clear that because A happened, B happens.


Here is the other thing, being a good parent is hard work. Consistency means you will have to do the same thing over and over and over and over again before you see results. If you can't handle repeating yourself, parenthood isn't a good personality match for you!

Yes, I believe that it is possible, if you focus on one issue and you be firm and consistent and make sure that you keep up in the other areas that you have already worked on.

i'm sure it's possible to start seeing changes in 5 days. sadly, I do this with my son already and it doesn't work for him. :/

 I think you can definitely start seeing changes in 5 days but it takes being consistant for long after that to permanently make changes.

I think it's possible if you really work hard at it.
